in second terms. >> but the familiarity doesn't always do the trick. here's president clinton after his re-election in 1996. >> in modern times, second terms for presidents have been disappoint original disastrous. i wonder if you have drawn any lessons on why that's so. >> things that derail a second term are basically three. one is some external event intervenes and the president can't fulfill the hopes or dreams. sometimes the president tries do too much. and the third is that sometimes a president essentially just runs out of steam. >> november 1972, after two weeks of re-election, president nixon told reporters, my study of elections in this country is that second terms almost inevitably are downhill. yes, richard nixon said that in '72. >>> after a string of legislative successes in the first term and after narrowly winning a second term as president, president bush claimed a mandate. >> when you win, there is a feeling that the president have spoken and in embraced your point of view and that's what i intend to tell the congress. i earned capital in the campaign, political capital a
. we will ask our sunday panel about the nomination of john kerry to rehe place hillary clinton and where the investigation of the terror attack that killed four americans goes now. and our power player of the week continues his holiday tradition to show respect for veterans. all right now on "fox news sunday." hello again from fox news in washington. at christmas, people who are naughty get coal in their stockings and at the white house and congress -- if the white house and congress don't make a deal in the next nine days to avoid the fiscal cliff we ring in the new year with big tax increases and spending cuts. here to talk about what is going to happen are two leading senators. john barasso, chairman of the republican policy committee and from new york democrat kent conrad, chairman of the senate budget committee. senators welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> thanks for having me. >> good to be with you. >> chris: before heading to hawaii for christmas the president laid out a new stripped down plan to avert the fiscal cliff. here is what it is. extend the bush tax cuts for
entrepreneurs are transforming the global economy. you also serve as an adviser to the clinton global initiative. what do you advise on? >> welcome to for asking me that question. i was just a global initiative in the last three days, and i've been working with them for the last three years and the reason i am thinking you is i really appreciate that affiliation. they had a wonderful platform and they made advisers on the program. what sort of things to feature, what will bring new ideas and challenge that audience to think about the different ways to engage in the world. it's particularly relevant because and every participant bad as they register this year they received a copy of "time" magazine in which president clinton had authored and essay entitled the case for optimism. and that the clinton global the initiative this year chelsea clinton wrote a session called the case for optimism. and then again she was interviewed by charlie rose and the was the focal point of the conversation. and so, you know, i am totally synchronous with that message and the quantum global initiatives focus on fin
department come before the congress. meanwhile, secretary of state clinton remains out of sight recovering from this concushion that she apparently suffered when she fell down because she was diof dehydrated from the stomach virus or something. do we have any more details on how that happened or-- where did she hit her head? do we know? >> or when? >> when? well, it was last saturday that they decided that she-- this concussion was serious enough for her to warrant staying at home. but we don't believe it happened that day in particular. but the timing is, obviously, critical in terms of what you're talking about with benghazi because she was supposed to testify this past week. she's since indicated she's willing to do something, perhaps, in january with the senate foreign relations and house foreign affairs to answer some of the questions. but in the meantime, this report has come out, ben harshly critical of the state department, and the place is really sort of reeling. i mean, you have the top three security fors within diplomatic security forced out the door. and you've got a heck of a
are remote. the one chance that is left is hillary clinton's tetimony. both senator bob corker and senator lindsay gramm have now said, there should not be a new secrettry of state and tell hillary clinton testifies. this certainly incentivizes john kerry t find some time on hillary's busy schedule in the next week or so and see if they cannot giveer up there. this report does not answer a huge range of questions. the mainstream media after three months has paid his no attention so i think it's hard, but i think the fact is that the licy failures that ended up in that tragedy in benghazi have not been changed and with gary in office, every prospect is they will simply continue down the same road which invitee more tragedy. lou: it is a chilling that this 3-month of stonewalling has succeeded to this point and that there is no indication irrespecti of the appearance of secretary clinton. let's hope that i am being overly skeptical here, but irrespective of her appearance before congress. we will soon see a break in the stone wall. lou: i don't think they're well. when they come back there w
with secretary of state hillary clinton, traveling the world and providing strategic analysis and advice on the day's most complex and urgent international issues. she was the first ever woman policy planning director. it was, she said, the job she had always wanted. >> no one is happier than i am that this day is here. >> but then slaughter just gave it up, quit, turned in her resignation letter to secretary clinton and left washington. she resumd her princeton professorship and life in new jersey with her husband and two teenaged sons. in the wake of her departure, slaughter wrote a cover story for the atlantic magazine. why women still can't have it all. within days the piece became the most read in the atlantic's 150-year history. over 1 million views in the first week alone. tonight she takes us behind that personal decision that became a raging public debate. explain the intensity of that kind of job because it's really much more than what many people think. this is a more intense job than very senior jobs in the private sector. >> it's comparable. it's an assistant secretary-level
and our entire state, we join president barack obama, secretary of state hillary rodham clinton, democratic leader nancy pelosi and expensive network of people in saluting ambassador chris stevens who will be remembered for his strong sense of dignity, his humility and his generous service to others. he will be truly missed by all who loved him and by all he served throughout the magnitude of his life's work. thank you for this honor. [applause] >>> members of christopher stevens family, ladies and gentlemen, let me first thank chris stevens' brothers and sisters for their warm and delightful insights into what he was really like. thank you so much. that was fantastic what you did for us. christopher stevens was obviously an extraordinary human being and contributor. every year at stanford we have a group of what we call national security fellows come. they were roughly army, navy, air force, state department. a couple weeks ago we had a meeting and the first person i called on was an army colonel. i said where were you last? he said in libya. i said did you know christopher ste
the services took place for america's first black president, bill clinton. [laughter] i have a little map for you. things start at the white house and they move along pennsylvania avenue toward the capitol which is on the right and there's a traditional copy of the white house that takes place and it's a big deal on the days when there's a transition from one prison to another. again, 1961 and that is when a lot of these pictures were made available. you just don't normally see these pictures. here's eisenhower and kennedy together, and at the same time, you have the when women together and they were actually the four -- they were the first lease of our country between 1953 to 1974. its eisenhower who was the outgoing first lady with her back to us that this lady bird johnson and others jacqueline kennedy who became the new first lady in 1961 and pat nixon who was the outgoing wife of the vice president at that time. another thing that takes place on inauguration day when there is a change of power is that by tradition field going president leaves a note for his successor. this is the not

there is a celebrity intervention at the commander, hillary clinton was delayed in sending reinforcement, partially due to the fact that clinton was entertaining a celebrity new york. i celebrity king george found prince william henry. diane also comments on a bit of irony. october 19, day of the surrender, the day clinton said from new york to provide this those reinforcements. have been one of the ships in the fleet to canada is commanded by cornwallis' younger brother. which then brings me to the kind of ice bucket, what i would call paper preservation discoveries. prior to 1870 come before the transition, newspapers were printed on rockland stock. paper made primarily off the backs of the columnists of what people were. also ship sailed. rats are oiled and ultimately sifted into the sheath to pay for and durability of the paper plays a significant role in the preservation and that today we can find 200-year-old newspapers that are in better lake position of last week's boston globe. so thanks to the rachlin and paper in which they are printed and thanks to the institution, we have these wonderful p
of the act. with bill clinton chronicles how those merchants were celebrating and when the doors opened they had as ship ready to speed across the atlantic to tell the americans good news. [laughter] >> after the boston massacre there was a brief discussion should be sent a ship's captain? a bostonian said i will carry the report to london. they decided they could not afford it. the royal government sent their own report. so in 1775 that is why the massachusetts government was not willing to spend the money. they knew they could be skipped if they did not. >>. >> we will continue questions downstairs. also signings of the book. let's continue downstairs. for our panelists. robert, a tired, and john todd andrlik is a publisher of raglan did, >> it is always a treat to be in this store it is a wonderland. about five years ago a friend suggested that i share rightabout ms. green.

as secretary of commerce to president clinton, secretary of transportation to president bush. it was on 9/11 that secretary mineta showed us what he was made of. he made the call to ground all of the planes. it was secretary mineta who instituted the policy is -- policies at tsa. it was secretary mineta who prevented the profiling of arab- americans and muslim americans in our country. tonight, we honor secretary mineta and we give them -- him this for a very special reason. i want to thank the san francisco giants for donating this bat. the reason why we are giving this back to secretary mineta is because of what happened to him when he was a young boy. secretary mineta was forced to relocate into the internment camps. as a young boy, he was taken to the train station by military police officers. as a young boy, he was a huge baseball fan and he had his prized possession with him, his baseball bat. military police saw the young boy with his baseball bat and said you are not taking it with you. that is a weapon. what did they do? they took away his prized possession. later on in his life
advocates pressured hillary clinton. joining us is hilary rose. an irish citizen nevy brown delair woman of love institute. it is so good to have you hered today. ireland is a catholic prolife country and why is this drawing so much attention for those who advocate for abortion. >> first thing we need to say . it was a tragic case. i am a mother of four young girls . everybody hate to hear about maternal death. we feel so sad for the mother and baby. but in ireland those deaths are rare. in the unitedination we are the most safe place . so this death caused a huge amount of incision . there was a hysteria about what happened had nothing to do with abortion at all. it was broken in the most senizationalist it went all over the world. woman denoticed termination dies in the hospital . it is said to the world that ireland stapped said accused of letting her die. that's not the facts. the facts show and emerge and tell a totally different story. irish medical experts came forward and explained that in ireland where abortion is illegal. doctors are always fro to intervene to save the motherac
people for a democratic transition. we will also hear from secretary of state hillary clinton and former first lady laura bush. >> ladies and gentlemen, the speaker of the united states house of representatives, the honorable john boehner. >> ladies and all men, good afternoon and welcome to the capital. this is a great day for the american people, and we are happy to welcome you here today. gold medals are the highest level of appreciation for distinguished achievement. the first congressional gold medal was awarded to general george washington in 1776 for liberating the city of boston. today, we will present a congressional gold medal to aung san suu kyi in recognition of her efforts to liberate the people of burma. today, we celebrate her steadfast commitment to democracy, stability, and human dignity, and we do so in a manner worthy of her ideals. nancy pelosi initiated the measure of awarding this metal and republican george w. bush signed into law. his wife, former first lady laura bush, is with us today, as is her predecessor, secretary of state hillary clinton. coming together in
h.w. bush unseated by clinton with 42% of the vote but ross perot was in there. but h.w. bush faced a primary channel from buchanan -- challenge from b buchanan. smart u.s. move is to put hillary clinton in the cabinet so she wasn't causing mischief. >> do you buy that? >> it made his job more difficult. i don't buy -- i understand why tag romney said what he said. he wants to protect his dad. there is something noble in doing that. i don't buy the claim that the dad didn't want to run for president. he ran for president for six years. you have don't do that if you don't want to run for president. romney for all the good quality that he had, one quality that he lacked in my view was authenticity. this is somebody who seemed like he wanted it badly. seemed like he wanted to run. showed through in everything that he did. now, one could argue that is good. one could argue it's bad. it's a stretch for me to believe he didn't really want to run. >> doug: somebody said -- i wish i could remember who it was. mitt romney in some respect, i think it was meant as a compliment was a ward cleav
. and advocates pressured secretary of state hillary clinton to address the issue during her recent trip to ireland. and joining us now is little lila rose, and the chairman of life institute. so good to have you both here today. and ireland has been a very catholic, pro-life country, but why is this particular case drawn so much attention from those who advocate for abortion? >> yes, well, i think one of the first things we need to say, governor, this is a tragic case, i'm a mother of four young girls. i think that everybody here our emotions, feel so sad for mother and baby who lost their lives, but it's important to remember that in ireland, maternity death are very, very rare and ireland, one of the safest places in the world for a mother to have a baby. and united nations recently said we're the most safe for a mother to have a baby so this death of course caused a huge amount of inquisition and people wondering what has happened. but in there theory that arose about the tragic death, was that this was actually nothing to do with abortion at all. so the day that the story was broken
ran out and president bush was in office instead of bill clinton, so we have at. now there may be some move to rethink it. i found in doing research on the look that violent gun crime didn't go down significantly during the period when the automatic weapons assault weapons ban was in effect that doesn't prove it had no effect but statistically -- >> host: there are arguments about that. part of it is that it band new sales but you were allowed to keep old ones so there's a stock of weapons so that you look at the period of years. >> host: but would probably have the same grandfather clauses about the purchase, so how effective what it really be? i think a lot of times liberals -- and i call the book a little case for the sake of the amendment make the mistake of thinking strict gun control that's the way that you control gun violence. that's the best way to control gun violence i think if you could eliminate all 300 million guns that we have in this country legally or illegal surely gun violence would go down, but we are not clear to be able to do that, and instead what happens is in t
this conversation right after columbine and the clinton administration very appropriately developed the cops in schools program in the justice department and in the past five or six years that -- and this crosses both administrations, it's not a political statement, the last five or six years across multiple congresses, congressional sessions, that money disappeared. even if you could afford -- and i support school resource officer programs. as a father, i can understand, every father would like, you know, a police officer in their school and many parents right now after sandy hook would like a one officer per kid, but my challenge and question is fund it now. if congress throws money when they come back in january at this, what are you doing for sustainability? and, don, you hit it in the head. five years from now, six years from now when the grants run out, how do you sustain that and who is going to pick up the tab? after the cops in schools program ran out under the clinton administration, local school boards pointed to the police departments. police departments pointed back at the schoo
they refer to as systemic failures in the very department that is headed by hillary clinton. apparently the state department and, you read through this report, they were utterly clueless about the threats and dangers in libya. how much plame rests on the shoulders of hillary clinton? what do you want to hear from her when she finally testifies? >> well of course the blame is on the libyan terrorists and we don't want to minimize that but when it comes to the things we can control, our own government i think the state department and the obama administration as a whole must be made accountable. this was a terrorist attack that where four americans diplomats were murdered. gregg: should she want to know, should she have been involved in security? >> not only should she have known, i want to know why in the seven hours that this firefight took place why did this accountability review board not even interview hillary clinton? she was just presented with the report. at no time was she interviewed. gregg: yeah. >> what did she do during those seven hours? where was president obama during those
sympathetic to conservative candidates. but they were very strong for jimmy carter, too. and for bill clinton, because they were southerners and themselves were of the faith and persuasions. but there were some of factors going on this time and this election. the obama team at the national level but at such a job, such an excellent job turning out its vote. the republican team did not. if you look at the same voters and how they are voting at state level and local level, you will get a different picture. we have a republican congress, a pretty conservative republican congress. people were comfortable voting for those folks. we look at governors, we have 30 republican governors now. so, many of the same people split their vote. they went for barack obama on the national level and when four republicans on local level. it is always more complicated. host: what is the future been like for the republican party? guest: we have no future. haven't you heard? we are done and finished. host: how do they deal on what seal -- guest: do have to argue for your point of view. i do not think we made a good a
. arguably he lost on the margins but ended up becoming president regardless. bill clinton did the same thing in 1992. the democratic party had a very negative image for the same reason. doing a poor job in terms of congressional leadership, which did very poorly, but then he cast a new image for the democratic party of what it represented and what it could be. that was the challenge coming into the election. the brand was so negative among folks in the middle and independent voters that somehow you need to craft a reason for people to trust republicans again, to give them the keys to the kingdom. i am not sure he ever successfully did that. i think the first presidential debate with the moment where it started. i think it was a bit late in the cycle 2 start rethinking their yen-- to start rethinking. the parties favorability is still much worse than the democrats. people see the republican party pretty negatively. even a fair number of republican-leaning voters do. i think the fundamental evidence is what people identify themselves as. for those of you who follow the polling, one of the big
she gave a speech and you can take away a thing or two and you can take away the hillary clinton name and just look at the text. the speech she gave on the development assistance was one of the most accurate scene on the topic of the international development. what did she say? a couple things that no one ever says that everybody knows to be true. number one objective, -- chu listed three but it's the most significant. the development assistance is not in the business of self propagation. it should be a time line of when does it end, when we stop, when do believe in haiti and pakistan and anywhere else in the world. timeline to zero. vitally important, she said that. she said getting directly back to your question she talked about corruption as an obstacle to the development. but she titled directly between corruption and poor countries and corruption in the united states inside the beltway contracts that are fed back and she talks about the development. we can talk about a lot of other systems, and tying the line that we are also a part of the world subject to the same kind of f
clinton. >> guest: now there may be some move to rethink it. i found in doing research on the book, that violence, guck crime, did not go down significantly during the period when the automatic weapons ban, assault weapons ban was in effect. that doesn't prove that it had no effect. but statistically -- >> host: there are arguments about that. part of it, i know, is that people didn't -- banned new sales but you were allowed to keep old ones so there's a stock of weapons. so you are looking at a period of years before it makes a difference. >> guest: if you reinstated the ban now it would have the same grandfather clause about weapons previously purchased. so effective would it be? i think a lot of timed, liberals -- i cause the book a liberals' case -- make the mistake of thinking strict gun control, that's the way you control gun violence, the best way to control gun violence. i think if you could eliminate all 300 million gun wes have in this country, legal and illegal, surely gun violence would go down. but we're not going to be able to do that. and instead what happens is, in
to clinton portis's mark. he is getting closer. he needs 104 yards now. next week against the cowboys he could break that mark. this is a sixth round draft pick. he didn't know if he would make the team. he could, if he goes for 104 next week be the all time season redskins leader which is remarkable. kudos to the shanahans for finding this kid in the sixth round, having the wherewithal to trade up to get robert griffin, iii. they had a great draft which is impacting the team. one win to go and they are the nfc champs. they had a great draft which is helping turn this thing around. >> he is like why are you picking on me. >> wis, do you agree? >> yeah, i agree. >> much more coming up. >> thanks. >>> straight ahead at 6:00, holiday shoppers are flocking to local malls. we are live in tysons corner for it.
to go over the cliff, have the automatic sequester cuts, take the tax increases, go back to the clinton era rates and that when the economy reacts, as it most certainly will, negatively, then he will blame the republicans for putting us into a recession. david: let's put a fine point on that. what we are suggesting here, they call it an outrageous suggestion, that the president is willing to send this country into a recession to get what he wants. you are really saying that? >> i think that he is willing to gamble. i believe that the president and his advisors have looked at the history of congress and they know that when we get a major market of bed, large drop in the stock market, any other reaction from the economy, that those members of congress will immediately concede. it is the same exact process that happened with tarp back in 2008. if you really look at it, what got us to where we are now to that debt ceiling of august 2011, in that case, we had the booties downgrade. it was sufficient to have everyone embrace as a posture idea. david: at one point, speaker boehner was in a mee
. the current debate is different, do not forget. after having surpluses at the end of the clinton administration, we went into debt almost a decade ago -- deficits almost a decade ago. the problems have gotten more difficult. at the moment, we have some interesting changes. you talk about 30 years since reagan. the country is getting older, so medicare, medicaid, social security costs more, but we have also had a lot of tax cuts. revenue is at the smallest amount since 1950. if we just got revenue back up to historical average, a deficit would be about $500 billion less than a career that is. the problem with that much more smaller. economists would then say that it is not much of a problem. the history is rather sordid, you are right. host: let me go to "the national journal." three reasons why mitch mcconnell will not save the fiscal cliff negotiations. the first one, most importantly, he is missing his dance partner joe biden. he has been kept on the sidelines during negotiations. some republicans think his absence is a sign that the president is not serious about closing a dea
're talking about, kiki, though, is returning to clinton tax rates, basically, right? >> what we're talking about -- >> that's the armageddon that we're talking about is returning to clinton -- >> you're not rising above now. now you sound a cliff jumper now, known. which are you? >> all i'm saying is that -- >> here's the deal -- >> to deal with these issues, we can deal with them in between christmas specials. >> the only problem is you're returning to president clinton tax rates, you're not returning to president clinton spending. and you have $16 trillion in debt. all of which, 60% of it matures in the next three years. so this is -- this is so much more of a precarious position, and -- >> so that should have a less impact. >> here's what this requires -- >> -- on the markets and on the economy. >> here's what this requires, guys, ultimately. this president doesn't ever have to run for election again, for anything. right? what this requires are a group of men and women on capitol hill who will stand up and say, i'm going to go head, and i'm going to put my own political future at risk,
office with president obama and former president clinton. he wanted nothing to do with our camera. we trying to track down those who owe the state. mccoy is also a former san francisco ethics commissioner, once tasked with keeping politicians honest now he's facing his own ethical tax dilemma. is it fair that folks like you don't pay your fair share? >> i pay my fair share. i pay all of my taxes as i can. so, that's all i got to say. >> reporter: the san francisco attorney told us in a letter today that he is working with the franchise tax board to pay his bill. mccoy is just one in a long list of californians on the hook for back taxes. we reviewed the top 500 deadbeats and found respected professionals including other lawyers, doctors, realtor and nurses. hollywood celebrities clueing dionne warwick and steven. we couldn't find him but here on main street in hayward -- we confronted another tax evadetor. >> you and your husband owes the state. >> reporter: the franchise tax board also says the couple living in this 2.5-acre in clayton is way behind on his taxes. >> [dog barking].
statement from bill clinton to say this, but i'm not sure it's a practical idea, frankly. >> first of all, when it comes to education, decisions really do need to be handled on a local level. that's how education decisions should be made. but at the same time i do support the idea of consideration putting an armed patrol officer. my sister in atlanta works at a receiving desk, and she's not prepared or trained for dealing with someone coming into the school. i would hate to think of my sister or another teacher have been to stop someone from breaking into their school. so it is something to consider, what we learned from friday and the ensuing conversations, we need to put all options on the table. >> but lapierre is saying don't even skier the clips and some are saying clips should be considered here? >> that certainly will be debated the gun control advocates have been talking about this since the tragedy happened and it's something we will be discussing s. but as we have said we need to look how we tree and identify though with his mental illness and look at the responsibility of the e
as well. >>> since you brought up kerry here, he has been nominated to succeed hillary clinton. so if he is confirmed, fawn action what will happen to his senate seat? >> i think that's what the republicans are eyeing that seat with a bit of hope. it's not entirely clear that scott brown will be returning, but certainly it's an option that perhaps for the republicans to have an additional seat in the senate, but there's no guarantee of that? >> i want to pay a bit of sound here from ben affleck. >> one never knows. i'm not one to get into conjecture. i do have a great fonds in and administration for the big business in this country. it's a big deal to been on this show which i've watched too much. right now i'm being happy being involved from the outside. we have affleck, but also kennedy being brought up. >> the late senator's son is being talked about as a potential candidate. he could very well run, though he's never run for office before. obviously his name is golden in the bay state. three members of congress as well, some who have been there no decades, waiting for one of these sea
to provide 190 votes for a deal that essentially raises the rates back to clinton eras, rates on people making just over $250,000. the number is actually higher. >> what would you give on part of the 190 that might go over to work with the speaker? would you be open to means testing, for instance, for medicare? >> i don't think you make those decisions in this kind of environment if against this kind of a deadline. i think all we can do right now and i'm convinced of this, the only thing we can do is head off the rate increases for 98% of the american people. >> be more focused is it what you're saying. >> and you can't do that behind closed doors. you can't make those structural changes and entitlements without a thorough national discussion. >> i want to you listen to wyoming republican senator john barrasso. take a listen. >> when i listen to the president, i think the president is eager to go over the cliff for political purposes. i this i he sees a political victory at the bottom of the cliff. he gets all this additional tax revenue for new programs, he gets to cut the military, wh
at the clinton years, almost an 8%. that's when you could talk about clinton era tax rates. but boy, look at those clinton era savings rates that the savers were getting. if you look at dollar/yen, it's having another great day, on its way to 85. 20-month high. if you read all the comments and stories this weekend about abe in japan, and today he's in the "wall street journal," he wants it to go to 90. he thinks there's definitely a war going on in the foreign exchange markets. he's probably right. let's look at the euro currency. hovering at an eight-month high. there's probably going to be excitement there. one thing i can tell you is the boon in the euro, big trade in the last couple of weeks. melissa lee, back to you. >> they certainly have. rick santelli, thank you. the fiscal cliff talks also weighing on the energy markets. let's go to bertha coombs at the nymex. >> we are seeing a little bit of a pullback here when it comes to brent futures, and also across the board pretty much in energy today. not what you would necessarily expect with the weaker dollar. the concern, of course, i
service of the mine which is illegal by the way under the u.s. law. they were busted by the clinton administration, stripped of insurance, but they have henry kissinger on the door, so they got everything worked out. this has 18,000 people working at 15,000 feet. straight down through glacier. it's the biggest gold mine and basically the biggest cotton - the world. but, people are shocked. there's a huge battle going on because they're putting 300,000 tons of waste every single day in the two rivers without, like in america you can't do that. but there you just play with on and it doesn't matter. so, what you are asking is to be pushed off and if you do you push it puts a to china who doesn't care. yeah it's much worse. at the bottom line is america is actually good about mining in terms of world standards we have the highest standards really of safety the you are talking about huge amounts of toxic metals that they admittedly don't know how to control. it is in the they don't want to be and i do not think they are evil by nature they just don't know how to do at. in arizona may be
california. first george bush, texas by a connecticut. bill clinton from arkansas, and the second bush from texas. so 2008 is in some ways a watershed election. it is this 40 year period of sun belt dominance. and there were issues that are critical in the politics that develop, that came out of the sun belt. they tended to have a conservative task to them. they tended to be oriented around history of strong national defense, of an opposition to unions and a defense of free enterprise politics. and also it's in the sun belt, in the south and southwest that we see the rise of what we see by the 1970s is becoming to talk about as the religious right, the rise of evangelical involved in the clinical process in new and important ways. so thurmond was at the forefront of all of those issues in his own politics. national defense, he was a staunch anti-communist. he played an important role in right wing anti-communist populist politics in the late '50s and early 1960s. it's one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure in opposing labor unions. he did so alongside
last week nominated john kerry to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. here to walk us through the policeman call cause and effect in three states are "newshour" political editor christina and "roll call" we heard today that one of the kennedy h,irs, ted kennedy, junior, decided not to run for the seat in massachusetts, what's happening there? >> more of interesting dynamics at play. whenever a kennedy decides to run in massachusetts he sort of think that clears the field. so when he said he wanted to stay in connecticut, potentially run for something there one day -- >> ifill: which is where he lives. >> exactly. opens up the field for the democrats in a big way. really where everybody is paying attention right now the republican side. senator scott brown just lost the seat very high profile race in 2012 to elizabeth warren, should he choose to run for special election, try to repeat in 2010 to be able to catch democrats by surprise, that could be his seat. but he may not run. there are lot 6 different things at play, he has options down the line, always run for gov
thanks to bill clinton. he pushed it over. if he pushes gun control in some fashion on assault weapons and doesn't get it done, believe me, that will be a positive part of his legacy whether he succeeds or not. >> last word to you. >> i mean, we have those laws in existence. i would suggest to you part of going to these kind of solutions, it creates a false security. we have now solved the problem. no, we haven't. what we really need to address is, in fact, what do we do with people who we think are threats and have mental illness problems, and how do we do that? i mean, in virginia tech there was a clear situation, and we had certain laws in place, privacy laws, that don't allow parents to be able to effectively engage to sort of help in this situation. >> and there were armed guards on campus in virginia tech, just like there were armed guards in columbine. >> i'm not arguing that point. i'm saying how do we get to the solution, and i think just jumping to conclusions here, i think we need a thoughtful process to really resolve this because this was a horrific incident that i think e
. >> true. >> approval ratings go up. clinton saw that and bush with barney. >> bo being an interesting first pet. there's the bo replica. >> there's the real bo. >> getting the picture with the replica. he's a portuguese water dog which a lot of people may not be familiar with that style of dog in america. but given to them by ted kennedy. right? >> yes. and that sculpture of bo is actually made out of pom-pons and last year it was pipe cleaners. i can't wait to see next year with bo. >> he has to top himself all the time. >> exactly. it's getting harder. >> harder. well, it is quite a treat to see bo being so highly revered at the white house. dogs around the country are rejoicing. >> of course. they have a celebrity dog in the white house. >> great to see you. >> merry christmas. >> and to you, as well. >>> coming up, no delivery, no food. a small group of workers with a unique protest. details ahead in that one. >>> hi, my name is reg nal bell and serving in germany and want to say to my sister, happy holidays and best wishes in norfolk, virginia. everyone loves surprise parties. ye
experience here. i am the guy that negotiated the child safety lock arrangement with bill clinton. there are things we can do and do now rather than debate endlessly over the things that divide us instead of moving forward on the many things that we're already in agreement on. >> you were -- when you worked for the nra, you were its political director. >> regional political director. >> regardless, you knew a lot about its clout in politics. do you in all candor think that the nra has the kind of clout it did back in the '90s when were you involved in those really high-proo file debates, for like safety locks, assault bans and so on. >> when i did the chaft safety lo locks, i was representing the nra. it's not about clout. what the nra does so well is organize and motivate their people to get out in elections. arguing against what they do, you are arguing against democracy. we're in this fight together, instead of dwighting america, let's come together for a change. we can. >> i want to talk a little more about the proposal that wayne la pierre made too put armed police officers i
to hillary clinton for president and chris wilson, former executive director of the texas republican party. thanks for joining us this day. let's get right to the question. should we find a way enacting new gun laws it will help prevent another mass shooting at a school, a movie theater or even a mall? >> well, let's not forget what happened here was not a violation of the law per se. we had a criminal who stole a gun from a law-abiding citizen. unless democrats proposes pose confiscating guns from people who purchase them legally, which i don't think they're proposing nothing they're proposing would have stopped what occurred in connecticut. it is a real problem for us to step forward creating laws out of the air that would have absolutely nothing to do with you stopped what occurred. kelly: richard, do you agree with that. >> well, here is the problem, kelly, with the nra's position. first, they're tone he have did. the public since newtown, or even before turned rather substantially against the idea of allowing assault weapons to be purchased, to allow assault ammo to be purchased. they
question about hair. you have covered hillary clinton. there is enormous chatter about her hair. >> this is so annoying. it goes back to the head and in 1992. -- it goes back to the headband in 1992. "washington post" has a new poll indicating her strong popularity. i cover her. i see the pluses and minuses, the good, bad, whatever. she is big things in this transition. when she was running for senate, it was not evident the former first lady could do that job. she came in quietly under the radar. there were than 13 women in the senate. she became a team player and developed key alliance. she proved herself to the point where she was considered a credible national candidate. she came in second for the nomination and ran a strong campaign. i think she has inspired a lot of people and worked very hard. the rest of her story is yet to be told. her hair is the least important thing about her. >> polls are showing her very high. that can coexist with people you have enormous respect for. >> what if instead of going to meetings and working hard, she was getting fluffed? then we would
